# Math Help - [SOLVED] find the value of x

1. ## [SOLVED] find the value of x

I'm confused by the answer I got.
The equation:
7x-2=4x
I'm suppose to solve for x but I can't seem to get a realistic answer.

The problem in my work book.(sorry for the image quality)

If
$7x - 2 = 4x$

$3x = 2$

$x = \frac{2}{3}$
